East West Tie Transmission Project FAQ Sheet

The proposed East-West Tie (EWT) project involves the construction of a new transmission line that will run between Wawa and Shuniah, near Thunder Bay in Northwestern Ontario. The line will cross through or pass by numerous municipalities and First Nations located along the north shore.
